Annette Knighten, 66, of Rosepine, LA passed from this life on Monday, April 8, 2013. Ms. Knighten was a loving mother, grandmother, mother-in-law and sister. Her love for our Saviour Jesus defined her life. She loved Jesus and would use any opportunity to share his love with all. Annette’s passion was her children and grandchildren whom she deeply loved and cared for. Jesus and family were her foundation, in this she was unwavering. Her thoughts were always for others, even when she was yard sale shopping. The things purchased were always for someone else. Annette’s greatest dream and prayer was that her children and their families would all find their way home to Jesus. All her pain gone now, there is no doubt that she will continue this work from heaven.
